Naiintindihan ng ABS-CBN actress-TV host na si Anne Curtis ang desisyon ni Park Bo Gum at ang management nitong Blossom Entertainment na i-reset ang kauna-unahang fan meet ng South Korean superstar
Si Anne ang napiling host ng Good Day in Manila fan meet ni Bo Gum na magaganap dapat ngayong Sabado, April 27, sa SM Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay City.
Pero noong Miyerkules, April 24, inanunsiyo ni Bo Gum sa dalawang tweets ang pag-postpone nito dahil sa earthquake na yumanig sa Luzon noong Lunes, April 22.
Na-touch naman si Anne sa pag-tweet sa kanya ni Bo Gum nang araw ring iyon.
Aniya, "I didn't expect it so... I was on Showtime, apparently, when he tweeted me.
"So when I opened my Twitter, I mean, grabe talaga yung mga... 'Hindi niya pa nakikita kasi she's live in Showtime.'
"I think it was very charming and very sweet of him to reach out and explain why he wouldn't be coming.
"Basta, I was just so happy. Na-distract ako sa Showtime after nun."
Natatawa pang sabi ni Anne, "I think it was, like... Memorize? 'Hi, Anne. Thank you so much taking to mc my Good Day fan meet in the Philippines,' like, 'Unfortnately, I won't be able to meet you but I hope to meet you again soon and I will pray for the Philippines.'
"It was very sweet and very respectful for him to actually explain that so I was very touched."
Siya pa rin kaya ang maghu-host ng fan meet ni Bo Gum sa June 22?
Sagot ni Anne, "Yes, I will still be the emcee on June 22."
Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Anne tungkol dito matapos ang kanyang press launch bilang endorser ng Belo Thermage FLX na ginanap sa Shangri-la at the Fort, Bonifacio Global City.
Pahayag ni Anne, "Siyempre, ang daming nalungkot but, you know, when you look at Park Bo Gum's official statement coming from him and how concerned he is about the Philippines and how he's praying for us, you genuinely understand that it's for everyone's safety.
"Kasi ang ang daming earthquakes na nangyayari.
"I mean, we had the big one and then the next day, there was another one."
Kinamusta rin ng press si Anne tungkol sa naging experience nito nang lumindol ng magnitude 6.1 noong Lunes.
Ayon kay Anne, kasama niya ang inang si Carmen Ojales sa kanyang apartment nang mangyari ang lindol.
"I was in my apartment, 42nd floor.
"We were afraid but it wasn't a shake.
"Siguro kasi, with high-rise buildings, may shock absorbers kasi.
"So, it was more of a sway. We felt safe but, of course, everyone was going down and still evecuate."
Hindi naman na nagawang makababa nina Anne mula sa 42nd floor dahil kagagaling lang sa operasyon ng ina nito.
"Hindi ako bumaba kasi 42nd floor and I was with my mom who just had an operation.
"She just got here, hindi ko siya pwedeng iwan.
"So we called naman the operation manager of the building, 'Should we go down? Because if ever, we would need assistance...'
"'No, we're sending every one back up na, everything in the building was safe, everything was checked.'"
Naisip na ba niyang lumipat sa mas mababang floor?
"Pumasok din, pero mukha namang I have faith in our building.
"It's very stable and it was a little sway.
"But when you look at the damage it caused sa other buildings, it's quite scary.
"Especially for much older buildings, exit right away."
